Can someone help me identify this car:
http://i625.photobucket.com/albums/tt336/internationalair350/IMG_4018JPG.jpg

This was my family's car during our stay in the Bahamas, which we got complimentary with the vacation house we rented (and yes the house was much nicer than the car). It got us from point A to point B, but you could only open the passenger doors from the outside, the engine was making a strange noise, and the steering was pretty bad.


It ain't no normal MD80 its a Super 80!

Looks like an old fourth-generation (1990 - 1995) Nissan Pulsar wagon.

I may, however, be wrong.

I was going to say Sentra wagon.

You guys are probably looking at the same car. The Pulsar was sold in some markets under the Sentra/Sunny name.

My first instinct says it is a Nissan Stanza wagon.

And the car pictured is better than any of the crap Nissan produces today.

This is a Nissan AD Y10 delivery van, built from 1990-1999, it's called the Wingroad in Japan, it was sold in various other countries as the Sunny (Europe), Pulsar (Australia), Sentra (New Zealand), Nissan AD Resort Y10 (Taiwan, Thailand and Malaysia), Nissan Tsubame (Mexico) and Nissan NRV (Taiwan). It's related to the N14 model Pulsar. I'm fairly certain this model was never sold in the US as the N14 Pulsar was never sold there either. It's pretty common as a used import in NZ.

The Bahamas sees vehicle being imported from everywhere.
I would initially have said that this would have been a Japanese market model, as many are imported to the Carribean's left-hand driving nations, but this is a right-hand drive model, and it doesn't come from the US market...

It might have been imported from a right-hand asian market or South american country.

Anyway, looking at the front tires, they seem to be badly underinflated or suffer from a severe geometry issue. Looks dangerous!

Look again. It's a left-hand drive.

The most common name for these in Nassau is Sunny, though both Sentra and Pulsar have been heard of, but are usually right-hand drives. I have not seen the name Wingroad pop up here until much more recent versions.

My guess is therefore, Nissan Sunny.

I meant right-hand drive as in 'designed for right hand traffic' Or left hand drive for right hand traffic... I always confuse the two, right before dyslexia kicks in...
Anyways; not adapted to Bahamian roads. But I did notice that many cars there do have the tiller on the left. Are authorities there lenient on importing and registering cars with the wheel on the wrong side?

I used to talk to local friends who vaguely told me about a planned switch from left to right hand traffic, which might have been history and never concretized. Is that still talked about?

Lenient? They don't give a hoot. While I prefer to sit in the "middle of the road" while driving, many people here actually prefer sitting on the side imagining it's safer or something. Also, all toll booths, parking ticket machines and fast food drive thrus cater to cars with the steering wheel on the left. When I feel particularly obnoxious, I drive through them in reverse.

Never heard any serious talk about it. Vaguely remember it mentioned in a letter to the editor in the paper ages ago, most likely by a frustrated tourist. I find it amazing how many folks can't drive on the left. Never seen a Bahamian complain about having to drive on the right in Florida.

Nissan AD

All the ADs I've seen here had black (unpainted plastic) bumpers and seats that looked flimsier than the ones in the picture. I quite like the AD's exterior, but I don't feel like driving on camping chairs.

Actually, the reason I thought a switch to the right would be convenient is because almost every car there is left hand drive, mostly imported from the US I suppose and, as you said, everything is made for left hand wheeled cars...
It would almost seem easier to switch sides than to keep trying to find right hand drive cars where there aren't any around or than keep driving in unsafe conditions.

Then again I supposes everybody's used to it and I know it's mostly city driving in the Bahamas, as in most other Commonwealth nations in the Caribbean.

Did you check the child safety locks? Most cars I know has this feature which disables the inside door handle to prevent children from opening the doors while driving.

Really? You'd rather have this car than a 370Z, GT-R, the new 2013 Altima that you can't buy because they are all pre sold, or even the Infinity G37. Seriously?
